Meow Cosmetics’ ScandalEyes: Mysterious Scandals collection

Tuesday at 10:15 AM: One of the sub-collections in the ScandalEyes collection. Shades range from neutral to jeweltone, from pastels to brights. All of them are sparkly beyond belief. You WILL need a base coat and a sealant when wearing any of these shadows. (Warning: THESE ARE GLITTERBOMBS.)

BareMinerals’ Marvelous Moxie Hot to Trot kit

Tuesday at 7:15 AM: Released for the 2012 holiday season, this was also a good way for me to try out the fairly-new-at-the-time Marvelous Moxie lip glosses. The colors looked intriguing, and I loved (and still love) the Buxom lip polishes. Maybe these would be glosses that were not as slippery, were not as sheer, were something that I’d actually use.

Saturday at 10:15 AM: Pale, and a wee bit patchy. This is more of an “effect” liner than anything else. I can imagine wearing it the same ways I’d wear highlighter eyeshadow, and getting some good results. Just be…

Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Sand Dollar

Saturday at 7:15 AM: One of the better metallic-silver eyeliners I’ve seen. The metallic-silvers from Urban Decay have an unfortunate tendency to clump up. Sand Dollar applies nicely and stays put. The brighter metallic doesn’t look quite as attractive…

BareMinerals’ Celebrity

Friday at 1:15 PM: This is either a muted patinaed gold or a gilded cool tan - depending on lighting and surrounding shades. It’s a tiny bit of a chameleon. Not a duotone, just a color that can easily…
